The real political task...is to criticize the working of institutions that appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticize them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked so that one can fight them. -Michael Foucault, 1974
I am indebted to a great many deaf people for their instruction, their patience, and their friendship. This book is dedicated to them.
